Thanks, iceflower.

And BB has an article and pic: Prins Joachim: Gå fremad - ikke tilbage | BILLED-BLADET

These "boring" yet necessary events suit Joachim well, while the more "folksy" Frederik is so much better at dealing with ordinary people.

Yes, but Joachim has the advantage of having actually tried to run a business. And as for dealing with the man on the street, Joachim is not as folksy as Frederik.
So they both have their advantages.

Thanks, Iceflower.

More from BB: Prins Joachim holdt årets sidste kongejagt | BILLED-BLADET

This was the first royal hunt on the island of Als in Southern Jutland, so it's hardly surprising Joachim hosted the event.

No, no, no, no!

This is the reason why gentlemen should always wear double-breasted suits.
Joachim's tie is "dripping".
That I should live to see this...

Thank you nevertheless, ladies.

Apart from that, this is a part of maintaining J&M's affiliation with Southern Jutland. The Danish part of the Wadden Sea, which stretch all the way down Germany and across the Dutch coast is located in Southern Jutland. Not far from Schackenborg.
The Wadden Sea is a popular tourist destination and a favorite spot for ornithologists, because so many birds arrive here, either to breed or to refuel before flying further north in the spring, and also stop here to stay for the winter or refuel before going south in the autumn.
- And on occasion the eels feed on a careless tourist as well, who is surprised by the tide.

At low tide you can walk out to sea for kilometers. The air is so fresh and the bright sky is endless, an almost intoxicating feeling. You watch the sun setting, in a red sky adorned with silhouettes of birds and the sound of their calls. It's enchantingly beautiful.
You look at the sea a kilometer or two away. There is plenty of time to stroll back to higher ground before the tide turns. Back to the car and the warm, cozy summer cottage.

Then all of a sudden the sea is closing in and you start to walk faster. Oh, the tide has turned. But the high ground is only a kilometer or so away, no worry.
You can't out-walk the sea though, because all of a sudden the sea has begun to pass you and now you start to run! But the sand is soft and when you look down the sea has now reached you and is creeping up your ankles.
Now you get scared! You reach for the phone, but they need time to get a helicopter up and locate you, while you tell them that you are now standing knee-high in the middle of the bloody ocean!
That's when you start to run. Really run! But you can't run fast in the water, especially with rubber boots full of water. You stumble, get soaked. And the water is cold, so numbingly cold!
By now some panic and begin to swim, but it's so cold - and if you are not located and rescued within minutes you soon tire and give up.
Some weeks later your body is washed ashore.
That happens practically every single year.

and this is why you should never go out in the Waddenzee (Dutch spelling!) without a guide or in a group.

The tragic thing is that this most often happens to groups or pairs.

What I described above happened to a German family a few years ago.
Two grandparents and a grandchild.
At some point the grandmother and and grandchild found a slight rise in the sea-bottom and decided to stand there, with the water well up their legs, while the grandfather tried to swim for help.
The grandfather never made it. The two left behind were found in the last moment, suffering from severe hypothermia.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #06, 2017.
Written by Henrik Salling.

Recently Joachim opened the Wadden Sea Center. The purpose of the center being to inform and educate the public and not least schools about the unique nature, which is on the UNESCO list of World Heritage sites.

Each year some 15 million migrating birds make a pit-stop at the Wadden Sea. (At times you can hardly walk fifty paces without tripping over an ornithologist with twigs in the hair... )

Anyway, the Wadden sea, which is located pretty close to Schackenborg is something Joachim is very familiar with, both alone and with his family.
"So much is happening out in the Wadden Sea - no matter whether the sea and sky is in uproar or whether you have the most calm and marvelous summers day".
Joachim is fond of oysters and often go to the Wadden Sea to forage.
"I'm most willing to help relieve nature of oysters".
But he won't disclose where: "No, that I won't say. It's too got a spot to reveal. But I do make a dedicated effort to reduce the population (of oysters)".

He also said: "I fortunately come so often to Schackenborg that I don't have time to miss it. But it's always a pleasure to come down here and experience something new".

- The center is located near the town of Ribe, which is one of the oldest towns in DK, almost predating the Viking Age. Apart from the odd sailing expedition the Romans never reached Scandinavia. So Scandinavia looked like the British Isles before the Romans came, for about 500 years more. I.e. there were very few towns.

Thanks, Iceflower.

An important thing to put focus on.
The volunteers, often unnoticed, play an increasingly and important role in the total defense. Called out more often than what is known to the general public.
